TEE Detected Clotting

Hi

Should I be on clot busters?

Yesterday I had a TEE performed and the Dr said he saw clotting....then he sent me home. He said he was going to start me on coumadin. I thought coumadin prevented clotting. What about dissolving the clotting I have now? I intend on discussing with him tomorrow when I see him. Suggestions appreciated.

I can't say whether, or not, you should be on clot busters.  But, I can tell you that coumadin (warfarin) is used to thin the blood to help avoid clotting problems.  Good luck at your appointment.
